PSA: KDE CI: How-To for stable branch switches being picked up

Hi KDE project maintainers,

tl;dr <a href="https://community.kde.org/Infrastructure/Continuous_Integration_System" title="https://community.kde.org/Infrastructure/Continuous_Integration_System">https://community.kde.org/Infrastructure/Continuous_Integration_System</a>
now tells how to make sure KDE CI picks up your new "stable" branch

Some days ago I found that a few products on KDE CI in the "Extragear" section
had not seen builds of their stable branches for some months (I remember at
least Krita & Kexi), despite being under good development.

Reason was that for those products a needed step had not been done after the
"stable" branches were switched to new ones:
manually triggering an initial build with the new branch
(needed with current CI

how to debug kscreen?

When filing bugs related to kscreen, we are told to add information
according to this guide:
<a href="https://community.kde.org/Solid/Projects/ScreenManagement#Debugging_Information" title="https://community.kde.org/Solid/Projects/ScreenManagement#Debugging_Information">https://community.kde.org/Solid/Projects/ScreenManagement#Debugging_Info...</a>

It starts with this instruction:

Create a script with the following content:

#!/bin/sh
export KSCREEN_LOGGING=1
export QT_MESSAGE_PATTERN="[%{time hh::mm:s.zzz}] %{function}: %{message}"

It also includes editing ~/.config/QtProject/qtlogging.ini

So far, those steps are clear to me.

Arch Linux Update Notifier for KDE

Hey all I wanted to help generate awareness for an Update Notifier plasmoid
for Arch Linux and possibly create an online blog post to help people know
about it.

For those who don't know Arch Linux has you manually upgrade packages through
the terminal.

My Plasmoid is a front end for it.

You can checkout my github page for screenshots and more information.

Current Features:

* change refresh interval
* turn version numbers on and off
* show upgrade in konsole or yakauke
* AUR support
* Custom Icon Support

This affects not just

KDE Frameworks 5.48.0 released

14th July 2018. KDE today announces the release of KDE Frameworks 5.48.0.

KDE Frameworks are 78 addon libraries to Qt which provide a wide variety of·
commonly needed functionality in mature, peer reviewed and well tested·
libraries with friendly licensing terms.

strange behavior of KCookieServer

Hello to everyone,
in my ongoing attempt to integrate Konqueror and QWebEngine, I'm still
struggling with a way to share cookies between QWebEngineCookieStore and
KCookieServer. While investigating this issue, I found a problem when adding
cookies to KCookieServer by hand which doesn't seem happen when using
Konqueror with either KHTML or KWebKitPart.

rpath issues

Hi Hannah,

I was working for a long time today with getting Qt to build in craft on my Mac and getting everything required for KStars to build properly on top of that since you told me I shouldn’t be using ~/Qt/5.11.1. The issue really comes down to one thing: @rpath.

CMake 3.12.0-rc3 is ready for testing

I am proud to announce the third CMake 3.12 release candidate.
<a href="https://cmake.org/download/" title="https://cmake.org/download/">https://cmake.org/download/</a>

The first two 3.12.0 release candidates included a change to allow
the target_link_libraries command to modify targets created outside
the current directory. This has been reverted in rc3 due to
problems with visibility of the linked targets.

Mail system switchover complete

Hi everyone,

I'm happy to announce that our transition from our old mail system
(Postbox) to our new mail system (Letterbox) has been made
successfully.

The transition was made with minimal impact on service as far as we
can tell, aside from a slight delay in mail delivery as the DNS change
propagated. At this time all major providers appear to have picked up
this change and are now delivering to Letterbox successfully.

As part of this changeover, we started from scratch with our Bayesian
database.

Phonon not building in craft now

Hi Hannah,

I’m not sure what happened, but there seems to be an issue with the phonon installation in craft now. Without phonon, Kf5nofitications cannot build. From the log it looks like a path issue that results in a file not found error. Your thoughts?

Thanks,

Rob

Color configuration issue on Plasma

Greetings . . .

I've installed and configured Ubuntu-18.04 with the Plasma desktop on a GPD Pocket computer, and the combination is remarkably nice and very useful.

In the course of configuring it I've been able to set colors, typefaces and font sizes, and so on almost entirely to my liking. The "almost" is because no matter what I do, I can't change the color of the windows' titlebar. I've told it to be white text on a black background (System Settings > Colors > Breeze High Contrast > Edit Scheme > Active Titlebar, then saved under a new name and chosen as the scheme to use).

Upcoming change to mail infrastructure

Hi all,

We've recently completed configuration of a new mail server which will
be replacing the current system which handles kde.org mail.

plasma5 screen management going wrong

With the most recent update of KDE, screen management is acting up. I have
a desktop with 3 monitors. After this update, every time I log into
Plasma5, several things happen:

1. I get a popup asking me about laptop display options. This is not a
laptop. Furthermore, the options presented are confusing. None of them look
viable. I have been leaving it unchanged. However, I do not want this
dialog every time I log in when my attached screens have not changed.

2. The arrangement of my screens has changed (e.g., the screen that should
be in the middle is arranged on the left or right, etc.)

3.

Akademy Config Workshop

Dear KDE community,

as you all know Akademy 2018 is approaching fast.

I'll host a Config Workshop [0] on Tuesday 14th August, Room 125:
two sessions from 10:30-12:30, then lunch together and a last session
14:00-15:00.

I hope we will have interactive and interesting discussions about
configuration-related topics and tools like KConfig, KConfig XT and
kconf_update.

Dolphin loses UI settings when restarted

Hello,

whenever I launch dolphin 18.04.2, it loses some UI settings. It is especially weird, because when I start dolphin from scratch, i.e. `rm .config/dolphinrc && rm -rf .local/share/dolphin && dolphin`, it looks fine, e.g. <a href="http://xgm.de/upload/Dolphin_1.png" title="http://xgm.de/upload/Dolphin_1.png">http://xgm.de/upload/Dolphin_1.png</a>

Then I change nothing, just quit and start it again, it looks like <a href="http://xgm.de/upload/Dolphin_2.png" title="http://xgm.de/upload/Dolphin_2.png">http://xgm.de/upload/Dolphin_2.png</a>

Now I activate menu bar (Ctrl-M), sidebar (F9) and toolbar (using mouse), change view mode to detailed, and change the icon size.

Limiting who can create v${NUMBER}.${NUMBER}.${NUMBER} tags in KDE Applications git repos

Hi, would anyone be against limiting who can create
v${NUMBER}.${NUMBER}.${NUMBER}
i.e. tags that look like our release tags to members of the release team for
the KDE Applications git repositories?

Rationale: Some distros build from git tags so creating a "release looking
tag" is for them like "using the release tarball" and we already limit who can
upload release tarballs to the download.kde.org so it would be a similar
restriction but for the git side.

Cheers,

Dolphin: add item to the context menu

Hi,

in Dolphin it is possible to open a context menu at a file. (point to a
file and click the secondary button of you pointing device)

Dependend of the file type you get a few action options. (e.g. Burn the
file with k3b if the file is an ISO)

I want to add an entry to this context menu to get the checksum of the
file. Is anybody here who can lead me thougth this process?

Craft KDE Connect install

craft kdeconnect

Is there a way to force the use of a specific BT profile on a specific hardware/device?

I am using Leap 15 with KDE 5.12.5, Frameworks 5.45.0 and QT 5.9.4.

BT fails with me since years to pair correctly with BT audio devices provided
they have also a phone hands free function.
In this case, even selecting manually in the settings the right protocol
(A2DP), since the system perceives the microphone, it always starts the device
with HFP.

Since I do not use handsfree on my notebook, is there a way to force(!) the
A2DP protocol on the headset and on the BT box? Maybe with a "read only"
association of the profile for that given hardware?

Lost behavior between KDE 4.1.3.1 and 5.5.5

I don't upgrade till a version is out of support since upgrades never work
and I have to do a wipe and load and that's an insane amount of work for
me. I've been using Kbuntu LTS 14.04 and loving it with KDE 4.1.3.1 for
years now. I am in the process of taking several older computers that were
given to me and putting Linux on them as well as installing Linux for a
couple relatives and friends. I grabbed Kbuntu LTS 16.04 and slapped it on
the first machine. Ugg what a mess.

The install went quite smoothly on an old Emachine. It has 2 gigs of RAM
but KInfo only showing 1.5.

Adding Kirigami Gallery to kde-sdk

Hi all,
in the kirigami framework repo, there is a little gallery application which
outgrew the point of being a small example.
It's now becoming a tutorial app: on each page an example and documentation on
how to use a particular component and when with links on the relevant source
code and HIG page about such component (if available) becoming a developing
aide while writing a Kirigami application.

Also, since it's planned to add more graphics and heavy media files, makes it
not particularly ideal to still use the framework repository.
If no objections, it will be moved as a standalone

Konqueror 5.0.97 issues

[Konqueror 5.0.97 on Fedora 28 updated just this morning]

Because of a disk crash I had to replace my /dev/sda which previously had
Fedora 25 on it. Fortunately I keep /home on /dev/sdb so I installed Fedora 28
on a new /dev/sda and all appears to go well. Except for Konqueror in 3
annoying ways:

1. I can't open more than one instance from the K Menu or the Quick Launcher
anymore.

Using either of those just opens the one already-open Konqueror, even across
Desktops.

craft not finding installed utilities

For example, I know craft has grep and ninja installed, if nothing else
by looking at the output of "craft --print-installed" but invoking
either of them on the command line fails with a "the term is not
recognized..." error. I'm pretty sure things were working fine the
last time I did anything a few weeks ago. Today I tried "craft
kmymoney" and it upgraded numerous packages, and then failed on one,
claiming it couldn't find Ninja.

Has something changed recently requiring some change to my
configuration?

Binary Factory & Windows CI builds temporarily offline

Hi everyone,

Due to some issues with MSVC we are currently encountering, the Binary
Factory is currently unable to successfully complete Windows builds.
As part of diagnosing these, reinstallation of MSVC has been required,
which has required Windows CI builds to be disabled temporarily.

It is likely that CI coverage will be restored sometime in the next 24
hours, however Binary Factory capability will take longer.

Unfortunately due to the nature of these failures it is possible we
will not be able to restore full service until Microsoft releases the
3rd preview release of Visual Studio 15.

Removing code from kdeexamples dir

From what I can see, the kdeexamples repo is mostly unmaintained (the

I propose the following:
1. Create a branch (or tag) called master-unmaintained, master-old or
whatever you prefer, pointing to the current HEAD
2. Obliterate everything from the repo, leaving only a
README.unmaintained file, reading:

But this is installing version 5.9.5 for Qt and version 5.44 for all kde
frameworks. Elisa requires versions 5.10.0 and 5.45 respectively. How can I
install these versions? I would be really grateful if someone can help me
out since I have spent a lot of time building the dependencies but its
resulting in errors while building elisa.

Craft kde/frameworks

Hi,

I'm trying to compile frameworks using craft, but I've encountered some
interesting situation, see this picture:


I get the same message if I try to compile separately
python-modules/doxyqml. I have Python2.7 set in
CraftRoot/etc/CraftSettings.ini

If you've already encountered this issue please share your thoughts on this.

Kind regards,

Fabian Kristof

Introduction

Hello, I am Bhavesh(username:bp_) from India and a newbie to open source. I
am a college student and really want to contribute. Mainly, I program in
C++ and I am comfortable with the basics as well as some data structures. I
found KDE to be the perfect place to start my open source journey and I am
willing to learn any new technologies/languages/frameworks which will be
required to contribute.

The VDG

Hello team,

Given recent events and decisions (
<a href="https://mail.kde.org/pipermail/plasma-devel/2018-June/086117.html" title="https://mail.kde.org/pipermail/plasma-devel/2018-June/086117.html">https://mail.kde.org/pipermail/plasma-devel/2018-June/086117.html</a>) I feel
it important to bring more to the table.

Martin’s decision is an unfortunate one. Martin has been with KDE through
thick-and -hin and has earned the respect and love from many members in the
community. He has also earned my respect.

I can’t help but think that the VDG is a tremendously influential group
within KDE. I personally take this as a huge responsibility and a call to
do even better in our approach.

Title says it all.

No need for long explanations, I am just not enjoying it any more.
Time to move on, sorry.

Best of luck,

Installing qml caches

Hi all,

It would be nice to install .qmlc files in addition to .qml files to
reduce start-up time of applications.
They are generated with qmlcachegen. For Qt 5.11:
qmlcachegen -o example.qmlc qxample.qml

Currently qml files are usually installed the following way:
install(DIRECTORY qml/ DESTINATION ${KDE_INSTALL_QMLDIR}/org/kde/kcm)

So this could be changed to something like
ecm_install_qml(qml org/kde/kcm)

I wonder whether someone already working on this or want to implement
such a function?
If not, I'll try to do it myself.

Cheers,
Alexander.

Plasmashell periodically freezing

In the last two days Plasmashell has started freezing every hour or so.

QMake version 3.1
Using Qt version 5.11.0 in /usr/lib
plasmashell 5.12.5
Linux laptop 4.16.12-1-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Fri May 25 23:30:31 UTC 2018
x86_64 GNU/Linux

I can recover with these commands:
killall plasmashell
plasmashell > /dev/null 2>&1 & disown

How should I debug this?
